Imagine a world where time slows down, where the cacophony of modern life fades away, and your soul finds the solace it so desperately craves. In this frenetic age, we often find ourselves racing against the clock, yearning for a respite, an oasis of calm amidst the chaos. It's in this very quest for tranquillity that Taj Bekal emerges as a shimmering jewel along the Arabian shores.

As you embark on this remarkable journey, you leave behind the hustle and bustle of city life and step into a realm of pure serenity. The lush greenery envelops you in its embrace, and the soothing cadence of the Arabian Sea's gentle waves beckons you closer. Taj Bekal is not just a destination; it's a transcendental experience where the boundaries between nature and luxury blur, where time is no longer your master, but your companion.

The moment you arrive at this captivating property, you're greeted by a hushed reverence, as if the very earth beneath your feet understands the importance of the pilgrimage you're about to undertake. The rustling of palm fronds in the breeze and the soft murmur of the sea create a symphony that speaks to your very soul. This is the essence of Taj Bekal—a haven of tranquillity that cradles you in its gentle embrace.

A Haven of Tranquility


You are standing on the shores of the Arabian Sea, a gentle breeze carrying with it the whispers of distant lands, and the soft caress of the sun kissing your skin. This is the enchanting world that unfolds at Taj Bekal, where the Arabian Sea becomes not just a backdrop but an integral part of your journey into serenity.

As you step onto the pristine sands, you'll feel an immediate connection with the earth beneath your feet. The sea stretches out endlessly before you, its rhythmic waves creating a soothing lullaby that permeates your senses. Here, time takes on a different rhythm. It slows down, allowing you to breathe deeply, to savour each moment as it unfolds.

The resort is more than just a place to rest your head; it's an extension of this natural harmony. The architecture seamlessly melds with the coastal landscape, with structures designed to complement rather than dominate. The colour palette of earthy tones and the use of natural materials evoke a sense of warmth and harmony, mirroring the very elements of nature that surround you.

Amidst this symphony of nature, you'll find your accommodations at Taj Bekal. These are not just rooms; they are sanctuaries of luxury and comfort. Spacious and thoughtfully appointed, they offer panoramic views of the Arabian Sea, allowing you to wake up to the gentle, sun-kissed waves and fall asleep to the soothing lullaby of the ocean. Each room is a cocoon of serenity, where modern amenities meet traditional aesthetics seamlessly.

But the experience near the Arabian Sea doesn't end with just the view from your window. At Taj Bekal, you're encouraged to immerse yourself in the elements. Walk along the shores and feel the cool embrace of the seafoam on your feet. Allow the waves to wash away your worries and the salty breeze to invigorate your spirit.

Should you seek a more intimate encounter with the sea, the resort offers a range of experiences. Perhaps a leisurely boat ride on the tranquil backwaters, where you can witness the mesmerising dance of the fishing nets and the vibrant life that teems beneath the surface. Or a romantic beachfront dinner under the vast expanse of the starlit sky, where the gentle sea breeze becomes your dining companion.

Culinary Delights

Overlooking the azure waters of the Arabian Sea, a gentle sea breeze carries with it the tantalising aromas of coastal spices and freshly caught seafood. This is the culinary journey that unfolds at Taj Bekal, where the flavours of the land and sea come together in perfect harmony, creating a feast for the senses.

The cuisine around this coastal haven is a celebration of Kerala's rich culinary heritage, where traditional recipes are passed down through generations, and each dish tells a story. At Taj Bekal, this culinary narrative comes alive, inviting you to embark on a gastronomic adventure like no other.

Local Flavours by the Sea: One cannot truly experience the essence of a place without savouring its local flavours. At 'Backwater Café,' the resort's signature restaurant, you'll find a menu that pays homage to the coastal treasures of Kerala. Here, the catch of the day is transformed into culinary masterpieces that dance on your palate.

Imagine savouring succulent fish curry prepared with freshly ground spices, or sipping on a bowl of fragrant seafood stew that mirrors the vibrant colours of the Arabian Sea. The local delicacies, such as 'Karimeen Pollichathu' (pearl spot fish marinated in a blend of spices and grilled in banana leaves) or 'Meen Moilee' (fish simmered in a coconut milk-based curry), are nothing short of a revelation.

The chefs at 'Backwater Café' are not merely culinary artisans; they are storytellers, weaving tales of the sea with each dish they create. As you savour these coastal delights, you'll find yourself transported to a world where every bite is an ode to the bountiful sea that graces the shores of Taj Bekal.

Romantic Dining Under the Stars: If you seek a more intimate culinary experience, 'By the Bay' awaits. This open-air beachfront restaurant offers a setting that is as exquisite as the cuisine it serves. Picture yourself seated at a candlelit table on the soft sands of the Arabian shore, the gentle sea breeze serenading your senses.

Here, the culinary journey takes a more personalised turn. You can choose your catch of the day, and the chef will craft a masterpiece tailored to your preferences. Whether it's a succulent lobster grilled to perfection or a flavorful prawn curry infused with coastal spices, each dish is a testament to culinary excellence.

'By the Bay' is not just a restaurant; it's a sensory experience. As you dine under the star-studded sky, the sound of the waves becomes your background music, and the taste of coastal paradise becomes your muse.

But Taj Bekal doesn't stop at offering exceptional local cuisine; it seamlessly integrates the culinary legacy of Taj Hotels. 'The Ivory Lounge,' for instance, is a sophisticated bar where you can unwind with artisanal cocktails and fine spirits while overlooking the serene backwaters. It's a perfect prelude to your dining experience.

For those who crave a taste of global flavours, 'Om Beach Restaurant' offers a diverse menu featuring international cuisine, ensuring that every palate is satisfied.

Taj Bekal's commitment to culinary excellence is not just about the ingredients; it's about the experience. Every meal is a symphony of flavours, a fusion of tradition and innovation, and a journey into the heart of coastal cuisine.

J Wellness Circle is not just a spa; it's a portal to a world of rejuvenation. The treatments here are deeply rooted in ancient Indian healing traditions, from Ayurveda to Yoga, and are personalised to your unique needs.
